A bag of rice and 24-hours later, to my amazement, Mr. Nikon has made a full and miraculous recovery! Who would have thought the old ‘stick it in rice’ trick for wet electronics really would have worked? But, I suppose, as the old saying goes – all shots never taken are always missed.
Welcome home, Nikon D5100. I look forward to many more shoots with you by my side.
… Too bad I accidentally wiped all the footage from before you took the plunge.
Under a month in and my new Canon 70D got hit up with an irritating firmware glitch that not even the message boards of the internet could solve. My only option, send it in for repairs.
Sad to think that my Nikon D5100 lasted over a year and a half with heavy use, was purchased second-hand and still sustains no faults even to this day. Should have listened to Casey Neistat when I had the chance – Canon can be full of glitches; as my brand new 70D-self found out after only under a month of use.
C’est la vie. Such is life.
